THP Offering Footage

Posted on 3/17/2011 by Jim Pickerell | Printable Version | Comments (0)

The THP Photo & Video Services has announced that its members will distribute video with the same ease with which they have been distributing images for over 10 years. The THP now hosts close to 100,000 video clips along with its slightly over 13 million high resolution image files. The THP is a software platform developed and administered by age footstock.

Alfonso Gutiérrez, CEO of age fotostock, comments, “The THP (Technological Hosting Platform) is gaining momentum despite the current state of the industry and the worldwide economy. During 2010, we focused on three major strategic and technical developments: the growth of the redistribution model, improving internal functionality and efficiency, and adapting the platform for video distribution. We are confident that all THP members will soon enjoy the benefits”.

During 2010 the THP uploaded 3.2 million new professionally edited images belonging to close to 200 different brands, 60 of which are new on the THP. That number also includes the carefully edited work of over 1,000 selected, age fotostock photographers that enrich the collections of age fotostock (Rights Managed), Pixtal (Royalty Free) and easyFotostock (Low Budget Royalty Free).easyFotostoc

Teresa Alonso, the International Director of age fotostock, comments, “THP providers and distributors benefit from an efficient model that dramatically decreases operational costs, a factor  of utmost importance for business viability in these times of low image prices. By centralizing image and video uploading, providing remote connection to specific providers, and freeing the distributor of many tedious, content management tasks, distributors and providers can focus on their visibility and sales potential".
